Flags on St. Joe honor Jeremy Tighe

Posted: Updated:

Friday marks the first anniversary of the death of McCutchanville Firefighter Jeremy Tighe.

A memorial dinner is being held for friends and family Friday night starting at 6 P.M. at Christian Fellowship Church.

Jeremy Tighe died the night of February 22 last year after the fire truck he was in slipped off the road and hit a utility pole on St. Joseph Avenue.

Thursday night, his mother placed flags at the accident site in his memory.

She says it's been a long year without her son.

A scholarship fund has been set up and she's been trying to make this road safer.

Her idea is to get a guardrail installed to keep others from driving off the narrow road.
